Savor an exquisite harmony of

from the interplay of people and nature
A selection of choice ingredients, imaginative new dishes, and attentive service...offering a perfect time and place for people to come together in a world all its own.
The name “Rikki” symbolizes the six essential energies connecting heaven and earth that give form to nature. It also refers to the six emotions of love and hatred, pleasure and anger, grief and joy.
The harmony of these sensations and emotions, the interweaving of people and nature, gives birth to an infinite world of new flavors.
Here at this culinary laboratory, our chef works with the local people and environs of Hagi to explore new culinary possibilities and create unique taste sensations.
